Do you have challenges with sleep, low sexual desire, weight gain in the midsection, digestive challenges, endocrine challenges, poor immune function, low energy, poor muscular/skeletal health, poor mental clarity, inflammatory challenges, poor detoxification and/or blood sugar challenges?
If you answered yes to any of these, then this very well could have a significant tie into adrenal insufficiency.
It is amazing the benefit that these two glands just above our kidneys provide for the body and the amount of challenges that can be created when they are not functioning optimally. The secondary challenges affected by adrenal insufficiency are as listed; thyroid, pancreas and ovary function, metabolism of fat and protein, regulation of body weight, mucosal tissue integrity, detoxification processes, immune system function, pro and anti-inflammatory states, cellular energy, glucose balance, bone and connective tissue turnover, muscular integrity, quality of sleep and mood, ability to memorize and learn and overall neural connectivity. Wow…that is quite a bit of focus for these two tiny little glands! I will also share that it is equally as amazing how often the adrenals are completely challenged due to our cultural lifestyles.
It can be shared that this is one of the major imbalances I see with clients consistently and is this a surprise? I would say that it is not a surprise, due to our current mental and emotional states that are tied into the way we deal with, or not deal with, our general life challenges. Add onto this our current economic state and the challenges that arise through these events and what is the result? If you answered adrenal imbalance you are right on.
Here at Depke Wellness we do not treat the adrenals; we simply recognize adrenal imbalances and provide the necessary recommendations that will allow the body to balance and heal from within. As I have mentioned many times in the past; your body has the innate ability to heal itself when we provide balance and get out of the way.
